    1. Actually I can’t believe all the communist democrat sheep buying into the fake news distractions. The fake news keeping everybody distracted. The Republican party is 95% unified. Meanwhile they do not want you to pay attention –
      Fuel shortages, hundreds of thousands of high paying gas and oil jobs gone, war in the Middle East & Biden silent, horrible declining job reports,
      Massive crisis and invasion at our southern border, drugs pouring in, Inflation spiking to the highest level since 2008, gas prices skyrocketing, groceries spiking, crime rising & off the charts in all the Democrat run cities, etc ….

      China Joe Biden is a monumental failure.

      If Trump had been
      re-elected, none of this stuff would be happening right now.

      And it’s all happening in just over 100 days.

      ONLY 100 days!

      Buckle up America , it’s going to continue to get far worse.

      A serious economic crisis is coming –

      Like China Joe Biden said with his own mouth, “no more America first”

  1. The ever-devolving GQPers are writing an update to their “2012 Autopsy”…but *now* it includes *’cannibalism’.*
    Beyond shameful…and yet *utterly* unsurprising.

  2. GOP Cancel Culture at it’s Finest.

    Don’t take them Seriously when they
    Complain about Censorship.

    1. Yes sounds right! Meanwhile the Republican party of Trump should be called Fascist wanna be Party.

    2. And they need to have a new perspective on things–like DO NOT DENY CLIMATE CHANGE. DO NOT DENY SCIENCE. DO NOT DENY MEDICAL SCIENCE. DO NOT BE A PART OF CULTURE WARS. DO NOT MAKE TAX CUTS FOR THE WEALTHY & CORPORATIONS YOUR ONLY AGENDA. IT’S OK IF YOU APPROACH THESE ISSUES WITH A CONSERVATIVE EYE, JUST DON’T DENY THEY EXIST!!

    1. Took her four years and having her own life in peril to stop siding with the chief nutjob though, so my praise will be faint.

    2. @NoneOfYour Beeswax Right, but faint though it may appropriately be, it is appropriate. I hate everything else she stands for as well, but unlike the entire rest of her party, she is truthful and patriotic. That’s something seldom seen in a Republican these days.

    3. The fake news keeping everybody distracted. The Republican party is 95% unified. Meanwhile they do not want you to pay attention –
      Fuel shortages, hundreds of thousands of high paying gas and oil jobs gone, war in the Middle East & Biden silent, horrible declining job reports,

    4. @FACTS ONLY Go back to the fascist supporting propaganda “news” channels. Most here prefer reality.

    1. The Republicans are quietly enjoying the “patriots and the intelligent” rooting for their party. And don’t ever overlook the rottenness in these liars who will unabashedly line up behind the Cheneys and the Romneys, if they become popular because of this. The losers in GOP are just testing the waters to see whether their idiocy wins them elections – that is the limit of their intelligence and ethics; just getting votes

    2. Yep. It should have happened long ago, but at least it’s finally getting underway now, it would seem.

    3. @mark g You can say that again! There really isn’t much that has anything to do with Biden other than a gaffe every now and again. Mostly again and again. Poor guy.

    4. REMEMBER THE TULSA RALLY??
      Let’s all buy tickets to split the corrupt Republican party into two, then three, then four until we have little splinters left for the new Whig Party.

      BRING ON THE BULL MOOSE!!

  3. How is anyone debating leaving the GOP currently? Jump ship if you haven’t already, because the longer you stay the more threats you’ll get from Trumps hardcore base. They want a civil war, and you think you aren’t on their list?

  4. Well, it’s about time! I am a Democrat and I have respect for REAL Republicans because it is not healthy for our country to only have one functioning party. Dems need the Reps and visa versa. It’s how ideas and compromises happen. It’s how a country is run, properly. I eagerly await their arrival. Democrats are not the power-hungry monsters you’ve been told we are. We are not the enemy.

  5. The truth or a lie for votes, that means you can put anything in leadership and that is wrong.

  6. And now, the gloves come off.
    Hope the GOP likes a losing battle, cuz thats whats about to happen to them.

  7. I think it would be healthy for the US to change its election system to enable more parties than two to compete for power. It works perfectly fine here in Europe, for example in Sweden there are eight parties in Parliament, of which two are in power (supported by two more). This makes for a vibrant and healthy political climate, I believe much healthier than what you’ve got in the US. Would it be so bad to have a couple of seats in Congress occupied by the Green Party, the Libertarian Party or some other smaller parties? As it stands now, a vote for a party other than the two major parties is practically wasted.

    1. As you said other parties have tried in the past, they were never able to build up enough support in comparison to our 2 major parties. Given the current circumstances I think it might work, timing is everything.

    1. Dems are expected to lose seats in 2022… it almost always happens mid-term that the party of the President loses Congressional seats, and the right have made it harder for poor and minority voters (voting locations further from minority neighborhoods and concentrated in white rich ones, absentee/mail in voting made more difficult etc)… I want 2022 to come slowly so they can hurry up and get bills passed before the majority is likely lost.

    2. @FACTS ONLY Trump enjoyed good economy thanks to Obama, he ruined it by not reacting intelligently to Covid19 on its way from China, the economy has been sliding for over a year and a half, this is on Trump. We are just trying to climb out of jobs lost, Trump’s tariffs brought higher prices, the oil supply recently was hacked, Israel and Palestine hasn’t been quiet, it’s just bursting at the seems from Covid19 lockdown, and they’re letting off steam again.

  8. Republican voters will have to choose between the Trump party or the New Republican party, splitting the vote. Trump has officially destroyed the Republican party. It’s true, everything Trump touches dies.

    1. Lindsay Graham’s prediction if Trump became president in 2016–“he will destroy us…”

    1. @Daniel Hawthorn Wonderful comment. If there were an Ike today, he would be mocked, jeered by these cultists.

    2. @FACTS ONLY A pipeline was shutdown because it was hacked, oil jobs leave the second the well dries up, war in the Middle East has been going on for over 2000 years and jobs growth is happening just slowly.

  9. Republicans, integrity and reform. Words that should never be included in the same sentence.

  10. Republicans are doing trial by combat on each other.
    Republicans: We will not stand for cancel culture
    Also Republicans: Liz you’re cancelled.

    1. I love watching them eat each other. I’m a former Independent leaning Republican, and I love seeing them destroy themselves because of that POS con man.

  11. I am surprised that General Grant ever said anything so wise: a civil war between the patriotic and intelligent on one hand and the ignorant and superstitious on the other. That’s exactly what we have here and now.

    1. He was a pretty smart and wise president. Sadly his presidency was beset by corrupt officials that shadowed his successes and any attempt by him to do any good

  12. Any person that lies to themselves and people are mad should never be in leadership
